  • We need public transit—why can’t we get it?

    June 19, 2008 | 2:31 pm

    I've never been a big one for buses or subways. I've never been able to organize myself around their schedules, at least when it comes to getting to work. So I usually end up taking my car (or, now that I'm in sunny Berkeley, walking, and not worrying about getting anywhere on time)....
